Natural England is an integrated organisation covering the whole of England. The Natural England staff working in the Crewe office (and most other offices) comprise a mixture of the regional team and the national delivery teams. Managers and team leaders working from the Crewe office will therefore also manage a number of staff who are home based or work from different offices.
